We have excellent carrara looking porcelain tiles, that give you the feel of natural stone without the maintenance of sealing. To protect the beauty of natural stone we recommend sealing the stone's surface every 1-5 years dependent on where it is installed.

Incredible! They are also available in just about any field tile size from 3x6 subway tile to large format 18x18 tiles for your floor.

Both the natural stone and porcelain options are great, you just have to decide which one is the best fit for you.
